Homework Help: physics

Posted by Becky on Sunday, October 11, 2009 at 3:52pm.

A daring ranch hand sitting on a tree limb wishes to drop vertically onto a horse galloping under the tree. The constant speed of the horse is 15.0 m/s, and the distance from the limb to the level of the saddle is 3.50 m.

(a) What must be the horizontal distance between the saddle and limb when the ranch hand makes his move?

(b) How long is he in the air?

I used the kinematic equations of motion but I can't seem to get an answer that makes sense.
